Co.arch designed the interior refurbishment of an apartment in via San Marco, near Brera art district in Milan. The challenge was to create an environment where works of contemporary art and vintage furniture could harmonize within a Milanese building of the late ’60s. The project is inspired by the interiors of Milanese’s architecture masters, recovering the charming materials used by Portaluppi and Bottoni and the geometric yet sober decorations of Gio Ponti .

 

The architectural proposal is aimed at achieving a rational and functional home space but extremely sophisticated and refined furnishing and materials. One of the most important concepts is the textural breaks: it is decided to keep the existing wooden floor, inserting a new one in blue and white cement tiles, keeping quite distinct the materials like a carpet that demarcates the areas. The wide wooden wall of the living area continues delimiting a cube that encloses the service areas: kitchen and laundry area.
